Syrian leader sends message to Venezuela's Chavez


CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A senior Syrian diplomat visited Venezuela on Tuesday bringing a private message to President Hugo Chavez from his ally Syrian leader Bashar Assad.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Al Mokdad didn’t give details about Assad’s message to Chavez, saying only that it deals with relations between the two leaders. Chavez has been a vocal defender of Assad, and has accused the U.S. and its allies of provoking violence during the conflict in Syria to try to topple its government.

His visit came as a U.N. committee overwhelmingly approved a resolution strongly condemning ‘‘gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms’’ by Syrian authorities and government-controlled militias.

According to activists, some 40,000 people have been killed since March 2011 in Syria’s conflict.
